Following Teledyne Technologies, Inc’s acquisition of 3M’s gas and flame detection business, a new company, Teledyne Gas and Flame Detection, has been established under the Teledyne banner. The business has a long and successful track record spanning more than 100 years, supporting a wide range of industries and customers with their gas and flame detection needs. So, the big question is will Teledyne Gas & Flame Detection bring differentiation to this competitive marketplace?

With the formation of Teledyne Gas and Flame Detection, the market can indeed expect a major USP that sets it apart from existing players: the company has become the specialized brand in gas and flame detection, offering wide product knowledge and expertise in this niche area. A proven and extensive range of measurement, detection and wireless technologies, set alongside the unrivalled skills and innovation of employees who have been with the business for many years, can meet the needs of customers in all market segments. Teledyne Gas and Flame Detection is adopting a dedicated, one-stop supplier strategy that delivers the optimum solution for the application, every time.

Teledyne is not unfamiliar with this blueprint, as the Gas and Flame Detection business utilizes similar technology, which compliments its portfolio of environmental instrumentation products and services supplied to related markets and have proven to be highly successful for many years.

The high-quality products of Teledyne Gas and Flame Detection comprise both fixed and portable instruments designed for demanding applications in sectors such as oil & gas, food & beverage, marine and public utilities.

Teledyne Gas and Flame Detection unifies these four industry leaders, creating a strategic insight that provides smart, first-in-class solutions with a future focus. Teledyne Detcon, for example, is a leader in fixed gas detection and innovative wireless solutions for use in harsh environments, while the Teledyne Oldham Simtronics brand specializes in high-end gas and flame detection solutions using advanced technologies and multi-market, cost-effective fixed gas detection solutions. The former Scott Safety gas and flame portfolio, now under the Teledyne Gas & Flame Detection brand, is rooted in the safety of people and plants in an industrial setting, and completing the picture Teledyne GMI is an expert in portable gas detection and a market leader in the gas distribution/utilities sector.

For this reason, Teledyne Gas and Flame Detection has introduced a new global tagline that captures the capabilities of the business: ‘Always sensing safety, everywhereyoulook’TM.
